Drivers’ license suspensions in New Jersey

Many different traffic violations can lead you to lose your right to drive in New Jersey. Drivers’ license suspensions and revocations can be ordered after a drunk driving conviction or another type of misdemeanor charge, including a petty misdemeanor or a gross misdemeanor. These situations can be problematic indeed and if you are facing this, you should understand how it might work.

First of all, it is imperative that if you do lose your license for a while that you abide by this and do not drive during this time. Driving without a license after a suspension can lead to serious penalties. A first-time offense will result in a $500 fine while second and third offenses will cost you $750 and $1,000, respectively. In addition, you can spend up to five days in jail for a second offense and 10 days in jail for a third offense.

The State of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission explains that once you have been able to reinstate your driving privileges, additional violations could lead to subsequent suspensions, as follows:

  • A first violation within six months of your license being reinstated will result in a 90-day suspension. A second violation within that timeframe will result in a 180-day suspension.
  • A first violation within seven to nine months of your license being reinstated will result in a 60-day suspension. A second violation within that timeframe will result in a 120-day suspension.
  • A first violation within 10 to 12 months of your license being reinstated will result in a 45-day suspension. A second violation within that timeframe will result in a 90-day suspension.

You can lose your license for three years if you receive three suspensions within a three-year period. To learn more, you can check out the license suspension page on our website.
